Day-Use: Open
Campgrounds: Open. Potable water has been shut off for the winter season.

Road Conditions: Clear
Shoulder construction continues along the Davis County Causeway. Heavy construction traffic may increase wait times to get into the park through July. Please practice extra caution and share the road with cyclists.
Trail Conditions: Dry.
Fire Restrictions: None
Lake Access: Caution: Due to extremely low water levels in Great Salt Lake, access from the parking lots to the lake shoreline is over 1 mile. Conditions at the shoreline may be muddy and potentially hazardous.

Insects: During warm months, insects are present on the island and emerge at different times.

  • Biting gnats (no-see-ums) emerge in the spring (April – June).  These are very tiny biting flies. Insect repellent is ineffective against the gnats; fine-mesh head nets are recommended.
  • Midges are non-biting flies that form columns along the causeway mid-spring through early fall. These are what cover your windshield while driving to and from the island.
  • Mosquitoes are present from mid- spring through early fall. Insect repellent is effective. Note: West Nile Virus has been found in Davis County.
  • Brine Flies Not currently active are non-biting flies that cover the shorelines and occasionally move onto land early-summer through fall. These flies are harmless and move out of the way when approached.
